Angela Richter

Assassinate Assange


The director Angela Richter met several times in London with Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. The audio recordings of their conversations form the basis for a collage of scenes that not only track the rise and fall of an internet activist but also the ups and downs of the World Wide Web.
